Unknown Katrina Victims To Be Buried Tomorrow In Mississippi

A year to the day after Hurricane Katrina roared over the Gulf Coast, the bodies of the men known only as "Will" and "Strength" will be buried in Gulfport, Mississippi.

The coroner says the two unidentified men whose bodies were never claimed will be buried under those names, to signify "the will of the community to move forward and the strength to rebuild together."

The men will be buried in an area near the graves of Faith, Hope and Charity -- three unidentified women who died in Hurricane Camille in 1969.
